A tragic accident involving a man who claims to be a psychic recently happened, proving that self-inflicted accidents happen anytime and anywhere.
According to Dailymail, Theprit Palee, a 25-year-old psychic was performing a routine to prove his immortality. He has done it many times in the past and always in front of a live audience.
It was a folk ritual in the form of a traditional dance “to honor the the spirits of our ancestors.” However, things didn’t go as planned, he was killed when he stabbed himself accidentally in the heart with a sword. The incident happened in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.
The sword malfunctioned and did not break, piercing Theprit through the heart.
In all of his previous performances, Theprit has never failed to stun and impress the audience by breaking the sword against his chest. But this time, a disastrous freak accident occurred when “he plunged the blade through his rib cage after it failed to snap.”
Paramedics tried to revive him but later died in a hospital.
According to Noom Udorm, one of the residents: “This is a tradition that happens every year. The sword normally breaks but this time it went inside him. He adds,” The medium has been respected for many years. People love him. He is one of people’s favorites.”
Here’s a footage of the actual performance:
According to Deputy Inspector Chaiwat Phan, Theprit was found bleeding upon their arrival. ” We are coordinating with the hospital while an autopsy is performed. There were people in the scene helping Mr. Palee but he died later in the hospital. He had a stab wound to the chest.”
This incident proves that fatal accidents can still happen even at the hands of professionals. Let us all pray for the soul of Theprit Palee.
